Pioneer 10: Masterclass – British Business Bank & Midlands Engine Investment Fund – Funding & finance

7 February, 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Working with Mansfield i-Centre, The British Business Bank are holding a briefing event to raise awareness of the new £250m Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) and provide businesses looking to apply with additional finance and funding support.  This Fund will provide debt and equity finance from £25,000 up to £2m for growing small businesses across the Midlands.

What’s on offer?

This event will brief business advisers and small businesses on the new funding opportunities available.  And how businesses can access these funds.

The Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) has been established in conjunction with the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the UK Government.  In short, the MEIF will provide small and medium-sized businesses with increased flexibility in the types of funding available, as well as boosting investment levels in the Midlands.

Whether you are looking to start-up, scale-up or stay ahead – this event will help to point advisers and businesses in the right direction.

This in-depth session will cover:

  • Background to the Birtish Business Bank
  • MEIF, funding landscape and barriers to finance
  • Business planning and debt funding
  • Raising finance and pitching
  • Q & A Panel
